Hi, my name is Traci, and I have been a massage therapist since 2004. It has been a long and winding road to find my ultimate passion in the healing arts. I’m originally from Buffalo, NY, lived in Los Angeles for years, now I live in LA.
At an early age I was drawn to massage as my mother chose me to work on her "bad back.” She was the first of many to say that I have strong, healing hands.
I have a science background as a pre-medicine student at Northwestern University, although I elected not to go to medical school. I become deeply interested in the mind-body connection and instead pursued social work. I bring deep listening skills to my bodywork, tuning into the needs and wants of the client. My philosophy is that I facilitate healing and wellness for the body, mind, and soul.
My massage work is very intuitive, fluid, and therapeutic. I specialize in Deep Tissue, and if requested I incorporate other modalities such as Swedish, Sports, Lomi Lomi, Craniosacral, Reflexology, and Thai.
I love to travel and had the opportunity to learn Thai massage, at the source, in Thailand! I truly enjoy working on artists and athletes, and I welcome the opportunity to bring my healing, “feel-good” touch to you.
